  • 1998 Polaris 700

    Help, I just got on looking for some help with the same problem. I just purchased a 1998 700 polaris Jet Ski 2 days ago and it is dying as soon as I take off. Sounds simular to yours. It idles just fine but as soon as I take off and just before it planes it dies but will start right back up. I changed the plugs and it has 102-105 compression. Any suggestions?

      Just purchased it from a friend 2 days ago. It ran fine last summer and was put up for the winter in his shop. The model is SLTH with a red motor. Could it be the carborators are gummed up? But it idles just fine. I have changed the plugs and checked the compression.

        Compression is pretty low if its only 105. I would be looking in the carbs too.
